So you like the look of old military laundry bags and feel like they’d make a good heritage-looking accessory but don’t want to look like you ran away from home or just robbed a bank? Well, you’re in luck.
You may think TCB used top-secret proprietary shrink-ray technology to shrink existing these laundry bags to a more approachable and proportional size but apparently, in the 60s, the US Army actually made these mini bags for personal effects. And luckily for us, TCB is carrying on their convenient legacy – because although the context has shifted, the need to hold personal effects hasn’t.
Known as Work Purses, these pouches come in olive back sateen, beige back sateen, and wool hickory stripe and are perfect for day trips and adventures. So come on, ditch the fanny back or shoulder bag and get back to the roots of travel and pioneering, with a humble shapeless bag that could hold everything you needed to get away from it all.
Available for $52 from TCB
